Today's news: Canada has also decided to withhold its voluntary share to UNESCO. Time for Arab deep pockets to put their money where their loud mouth is!

Vienna,nov 2,2011 I agree with Dr.Attiya Inayatullah. I just have written if only Prince Khaled had guts he should have come forward to make good what UNESCO was going to suffer as a result instead of upping by 900000 dollars the 100000 offered reward by a Sheikh to terrorist abductors of a single Israeli citizen.He could guarantee Israel crude delivery in exchange for state hood for Palestine in secured territories of West Bank with Jerusalem as Capital and Gaza Strip.
